Filipino War Veterans Should Be Cautious from Updated Pension Scam

The Philippine Veterans Affairs Office (PVAO) has warned Filipino war veterans about the new modus operandi scam targeting their pension.

Based on the report of Remate, a system will call them from an unregistered number and pretend to update their pension validation with a replacement fee. PVAO said they were not authorized to conduct the transaction.

“Be reminded also that any services regarding validation of your pension status is free of charge. Do not allow yourself to be a victim of fraud,” PVAO reminded.
